2nd Graders from Marie Philip School, The Learning Center for the Deaf Donated Handmade Hats to ODSC
ODSC board members were surprised to get an email from 2nd graders from Marie Philip School, the Learning Center for the Deaf with their teacher, Sara Pattison saying, "There are 111 hats they made as part of a community service project. They wanted to donate all of them to ODSC.” The project was our Community Service Project. We had learned about wants and needs and learned that some people don't have what they need for winter. We decided to create the simple hats to donate. The students are 7 and 8 years old all from Marie Philip School.
ODSC board members welcomed this with good heartfelt feeling saying "YES" and saw a huge bag of colorful hats. AWESOME from the 2nd graders!!
ODSC is planning to put a sign with the hats when they have the exhibition table which will happen the next few months and donate to them. Also ODSC will give some hats to ODSC's cultural broker, so she can give out when she sees the victims and their children.
It is a very warm gesture of community support from MJP School and 2nd graders!!
ODSC is proud of your work and big thanks to those wonderful group!
